Wagner produced 14 points (4-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four rebounds, an assist, a steal and a blocked shot across 35 minutes in Sunday's 128-117 loss to the Sixers.
Wendell Carter (eye) was expected to take the reins at center upon Nikola Vucevic's departure, but inconsistent play and injury have transformed the position into a timeshare with Carter, Mo Bamba and Wagner. Wagner drew 10 consecutive starts to finish the season, and it's anyone's guess who will emerge to take over the position moving forward.
Wagner managed 17 points (6-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 13 rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 114-102 loss to the Bucks.
Wagner continues to play well for his new team, turning in his first double-double as a member of the Magic. He has demonstrated the ability to produce at a standard league level in the past, and, given his current role, he could end the season as a viable commodity. He typically offers very little on the defensive end of the floor, but if you simply need scoring with some rebounds and threes, feel free to give him a look.
Wagner dropped 20 points (4-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 9-9 FT), four rebounds, two steals and a block in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 132-96 loss to the Celtics.
Wagner connected on a career-high nine free throws in this one and has scored at least 20 points in two of his last three games. With Chuma Okeke (ankle) looking like he's done for the season, Wagner will likely continue to see expanded playing time.
Wagner scored 10 points (4-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with four rebounds and three assists across 41 minutes in Monday's win over the Pistons.
Wagner continued to have a clear path to minutes with Chuma Okeke (ankle) and Otto Porter (foot) sidelined. However, he's been inconsistent in three games with the expanded opportunity by averaging 13.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game
Wagner will start Friday's contest against the Grizzlies, Roy Parry of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
With Chuma Okeke (ankle) sidelined, Wagner will get the nod in his second appearance with Orlando. In his debut, he posted two points, two rebounds and one assist in nine minutes. In 14 prior starts with the Wizards this season, Wagner averaged 7.8 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.3 steals in 16.1 minutes.
Wagner totaled two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in nine minutes during Wednesday's 109-104 victory over the Cavaliers.
Wagner made his debut for the Magic after signing a one-year contract earlier in the week. His exact role is unclear at this point; however, it seems unlikely he will be a key piece of the rotation, at least on most nights.
Wagner (recently signed) could see limited minutes Wednesday against the Cavaliers, Roy Parry of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Wagner agreed to a one-year contract with the Magic on Tuesday, and he might be able to make his debut just one day later. However, if he does, it will be in a limited capacity.
Wagner agreed to a one-year contract with the Magic on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Wagner will be moving on to his third team of the season after stops in Washington and Boston. The 2018 first-round pick was productive on a per-minute basis over his 34 appearances, averaging 5.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 12.8 minutes per contest while shooting 48.5 percent from the floor and 77.8 percent from the free throw line. Wagner will likely slot in as Orlando's No. 3 center behind Wendell Carter and Mo Bamba.
Wagner was waived by the Celtics on Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Wagner was let go by the Celtics in order to create roster space for the addition of Jabari Parker. Wagner averaged just 1.2 points and 2.1 rebounds across 6.8 minutes in nine games after being traded to Boston from Washington.
Wagner posted zero points (0-1 FG), one rebound, one block, three turnovers and two personal fouls across five minutes in Thursday's 121-113 road win over the Lakers.
Wagner was the worst offender of a Boston bench squad that quickly almost squandered a large lead set by the Celtics starters. In five minutes of terrible play, Wagner recorded a team-worst minus-20 plus/minus ratio. The end-of-bench players performed so poorly that coach Brad Stevens was forced to play his starters with roughly three minutes remaining. Wagner is now clearly behind Robert Williams, Tristan Thompson and fellow new Celtic Luke Kornet on the team's depth chart.
Wagner will return to a reserve role in Friday's game against the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Wagner failed to do much when he got the start in the Celtics' previous game. He recorded just two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3PT) and two assists. He will now look to provide a spark off the bench, as Boston has opted to start Robert Williams on Friday.
Wagner finished with just two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists in Monday's loss to the Mavs.
Making his first start for the Celtics in only his fourth game with the team, Wagner picked up three fouls in his 16 minutes of action and wasn't able to provide much resistance against the Mavs' Kristaps Porzingis. The Michigan product moved into the lineup with Tristan Thompson (health and safety protocols) and Robert Williams (illness) out, and he likely won't see many starts the rest of the way as long as one of Williams or Thompson is healthy.
Wagner will start Wednesday's game against the Mavericks.
The 23-year-old averaged only 7.0 minutes across his first three appearances for the Celtics, but he'll slide into the starting five Wednesday with Robert Williams (illness) joining Tristan Thompson (COVID-19 protocols) on the inactive list. Wagner should see more playing time but remains a risky fantasy option.
Wagner made his Celtics debut in Boston's 122-114 win over the Bucks on Friday, finishing with three points (1-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and five rebounds in 10 minutes.
Head coach Brad Stevens said prior to the game that Wagner was unlikely to play one day after being acquired from Washington, but the Celtics' shortage of healthy centers likely prompted Stevens to change his plans. Wagner wasn't especially effective, posting a minus-8 during his time on the court while missing three of his four shots and committing three turnovers. Once Tristan Thompson (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) is cleared to return, Wagner isn't a sure bet to stick in Stevens' rotation.
Wagner (recently traded) will be in uniform but is not expected to see the court Friday against the Bucks, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.
Even once Wagner is ready to see the floor with his new team, it's not clear how much he'll actually play. He'll be fighting for minutes with a variety of frontcourt players.
Wagner was traded from the Bulls to the Celtics on Thursday in exchange for Daniel Theis, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
After being dealt from the Wizards to the Bulls, Wagner will be re-routed to the Celtics. Wagner will be fighting for playing time with Grant Williams, Semi Ojeleye, Tristan Thompson and Robert Williams. It seems unlikely Wagner's fantasy value will rise.
Wagner was traded to the Bulls on Thursday, along with Troy Brown, in exchange for Daniel Gafford and Chandler Hutchison, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
This isn't exactly a blockbuster, but the two teams will swap a pair of role players, as the Bulls, in particular, shake up their roster after acquiring Nikola Vucevic from Orlando earlier in the day. With Wendell Carter out of the picture, Wagner will have a chance to step in as one of the backups to Vucevic, though his role will likely be limited. Wagner was a DNP-coach's decision in five of his final six games with the Wizards.
Wagner will come off the bench for Saturday's game against Milwaukee.
Wagner will shift to the bench for the first time since Feb. 12. He's averaging 7.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 14.7 minutes per game this season and has struggled shooting from the field as of late. Alex Len will get the start in Wagner's place.
Wagner posted six points (2-9 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 127-112 loss to the Grizzlies.
Wagner's shot has been inconsistent since he joined the starting five on Valentine's Day. The center is scoring 8.6 points per game in 16.3 minutes while shooting just 46.2 percent from the field and 29.6 percent from deep. His past six games have been especially troublesome, with Wagner hitting just 36.1 percent of his field goals. At this point, he's only a viable option in deeper fantasy formats.
Wagner tallied 21 points (8-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds and five assists across 25 minutes in a loss to the Clippers on Tuesday.
Wagner bounced back from a trio of disappointing starts, finishing with a season-high 21 points and five dimes while tying his season best with seven boards. The third-year center came into the contest having scored only 13 combined points over his previous three games, and he has proven difficult to count on throughout the campaign despite the occasional strong performance.
